LibriVox recording of Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens. Read by Mil Nicholson

Charles Dickens the author of Dombey and Son, originally wrote the book in installments which were published from October 1846 to April 1848 under the title Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son: Wholesale, Retail and for Exportation.

The story centers around Paul Dombey, the stern owner of the Firm. He is totally immersed in having his newly born son continue the business, and entirely neglects his daughter Florence. Tragedy occurs, and Florenceā€™s plight worsens. As the years go by, Mr. Dombey sees to it that the man she loves, his employee, is sent far away. Mr Dombey remarries, but his marriage is eventually destroyed, his fortune gone, he becomes destitute. Finally he accepts help from his daughter, and life changes for him. Many wonderful characters interweave the tale, as in all Dickens literary masterpieces. (Summary by Mil Nicholson)

Subject: Listening to Dickens
Although I love reading Dickens, there is an advantage to hearing his novels read by such an excellent actress as Mil Nicholson.

On reading Dickens, I have found some of the extended monologues to be tedious. Not being british, I am not well aquainted with British dialects. Mil Nicholson breaths life into these monologues making them thoroughly enjoyable accentuating the idiosyncrasies of the various dialects. It awakes an appetite to replay the monologues a number of times.

Nothing needs to be said about the greatness of the novel "Dombey and Son." I do highly recommend this rendition of it. It carried me through a long bout of the flu and was a great consolation.

Thank you, Mil Nicholson!

Subject: Fabulous reading!
Is Dombey the zenith of Dickens' talent?
Maybe. The emotional depth of this novel is profound but it's not overly grim and introspective, for there are weird and wonderful characters here aplenty. And the ending is redemptive.

We may assume that Mil Nicholson, the reader, is a professional actor who is presently ah... resting. Her voice characterisations are flawlessly consistent from beginning to end of this long (but not long enough) novel.

A wonderful recording in the best tradition of LibriVox. Thank you, Mil, for making my drive to work a pleasure.
